Supply Chain Systems and Modelling
BHT 4018 Summative Assessment
This assignment represents 60% of the module. th The work should be submitted on or before 23:59 on 5 February 2018 in Unilearn/Turnitin following the link: Assignments/Summative Assessment/ The coursework document. A word processed report of 3,000 words should be provided. All numerical and graphical analyses should be included in this document and submitted via Unilearn, Turnitin. The files with the model solutions (e.g. in ARENA, Excel, Paragon etc.) must be submitted in Unilearn following the indicated link: Assignments/Summative Assessment/The models file. th You will receive feedback on this assignment 28 February 2018. The tutor reassessment work is due on 14 March 2018. The front page of your report should include the following: student name and number, module code, assignment name, tutor name, total word count for the main text (this excludes the word count for the figures, tables, front page, references, table of contents and appendices). Incorporate a table of contents after the front page. At the end of your report, incorporate a list of references using the APA6 referencing style and appendices.
Describe the theoretical aspects of the selected operational techniques in the
context of your case study. Detail how and why your selected technique is best suited to the identified issue. Describe the approach required to apply the selected techniques that will potentially provide an improvement to the issues identified. (35 marks) C. Critically analyse the proposed models and results. Present your
and give recommendations for the future. (30 marks) D. Reflecting on your experience of doing this assignment, provide a self- evaluation on how preparing for this assignment helped you in your understanding of the supply chain modelling techniques. Please note: your reflection is a personal one, so this part will not be assessed. However, it will be taken to form part of the overall evaluation intended to ascertain your understanding of the contributions of supply chain modelling. This evaluation may be considered for the overall module evaluation and research. There will be no reference to your name if any information provided within this report is used in research.
You are required to research and develop your own case study material for this assignment following the supply chain structure provided in Figure 1 below. The case study can be focused on any manufacturing company as a focal factory. Where a full case study or parts of the case study are being compiled from published secondary material, you are required to reference this appropriately using the APA6 referencing style. Distribution Suppliers Manufacturers centres Retailers Figure 1.
A supply chain system
Describe the case study you aim to develop. You can change characteristics of the model provided in Figure 1 to fit with your desired case study. However, your modified model should include suppliers, manufacturer (s) and retailers. Any further modifications of the model are possible. The developed model could incorporate any number of suppliers, more than one manufacturer with assembly and pre-assembly operations, retailers, distributors and final customers. Highlight the critical issues within this case study (for example, high inventory level, low customer service level, high transport cost, inappropriate use of performance measures, and so on). Identify the key performance measures that will be considered for the analysis (for example, total distance travelled, number of products delivered, delivery on time in full, and so on). Provide reference to the data set to be used in this analysis. (35 marks) B. Select two operational techniques to solve/analyse some of the issues identified in part A. The selection of the techniques must make use of two of the following: discrete event simulation for complex supply chain systems using ARENA, Vehicle Routing Problem (using Excel or Paragon) and/or the ERP approach using SAP. 2
